If you were to loose all your memories would you be effectively dead?

no, there really is nothing else but the present moment, as long as I am here, biting into life and tasting every moment, I am alive.

It'd be closer to a rebirth rather than death

There is a documentary about this, [i]The Prisoner of Consciousness[/i], about a man named Clive Wearing, who lost most of his memories after contracting encephalitis. He is also unable to form new memories, and has a working short-term memory of only a few seconds.

[@9310,reflectingmonkey] I haven't seen the documentary, but look up "Clive Wearing" on YouTube and there's quite a bit of material.
